billion on air-conditioning in iraq and afghanistan. >> in 2002, richard pearl, chairman of the defense policy board said "we're not talking about a massive invasion along the lines of '91. we're talking about a much more modest effort in which the united states will assist iraqis in freeing their country." let me get over to paul about the manpower and loss of lives. and the world you live with. 31,000 wounded. about 600 amputees. give me a sense of your own personal experience with what the personal cost of this war was. besides the loss of 4,000 american service people? >> we didn't see too many of those air conditioners. when i was in iraq, i lost friends. we lost colleagues. we saw a lot of carnage and destruction. and i think the real untold story is the price we're going to pay for generations to come. a million veterans, including myself, served in iraq and are now home. and we all know that there was a real shortage of planning on the ground in iraq. they didn't have enough interpreters. didn't have enough body armor. didn't have enough humvees. there's a shortage now on the ho

defense education loans i was in the peace corps, changed my lives. my father worked for the city of philadelphia. i have no problem with public service. that's where i'm at. that's how i got here. your party says that's degraded. i got a 47% because my father is on a g.i. bill and ended up on social security. what's wrong with government? >> look it -- >> good for most people. am i addicted to government? >> first of all, as a country, particularly to washington they're addicted to spending. we created this massive point -- >> you're on there. that's your winning -- you got the win card right there. >> manufacturing, obama says those jobs are gone forever. >> he does not say that, actually. >> when did he say that? >> president obama did not say that. >> we've got to admit those jobs are gone. >> no. >> some. >> he worked hard to bring back manufacturing. >> perhaps most typical -- let's get back to our report. reince priebus, it's about communication but the party never tried to stop to distant franchise, mainly poor african-american voters since the last election. stricter phot
people. they called it an act of self-defense but for nearly three years, israel and turkey, two of america's closest allies, have been in a war of words. that is, until today. in an unexpected move of sheer diplomacy, the president orchestrated a ten-minute phone call on the tarmac in tel-aviv. israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu called turkey's prime minister and apologized for that deadly raid, apologized for nine deaths and vowed to pay their family. at one point mr. obama, just before leaving for jordan, got on the phone with both leaders and they spoke. one senior american official said, this is obama diplomacy at work. the leaders agreed to restore normal relations. so that is real, tangible success and it shows the success of the trip. but then there are symbolic successes. today he went to former israeli prim minister's grave. he was assassinated by an extremist. as is customary in a jewish tradition, he placed a stone on the grave but this stone had powerful symbolism. it came from the martin luther king memorial in washington. the president, connecting one civil r

nobody was a bigger hawk than richard pearl, a real intellectual, a member of the defense policy board. he repeatedly asserted that saddam hussein had ties to osama bin laden and was feverishly working to acquire a nuclear bomb and he promised, richard pearl did, that the war would be over in a matter of months. he was asked a very important question. i think it's a good question. his non-answer is informative. let's listen. >> ten years later, nearly 5,000 american troops dead, thousands more with wounds, hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or wounded, when you think about this, was it worth it? >> i've got to say i think that is not a reasonable question. what we did at the time was done in the belief that it was necessary to protect this nation. you can't, a decade later go back and say we shouldn't have done that. >> so don't ask whether he should have gone in or not. another unrepentant war hawk. he was deputy secretary of the defense at the time of the invasion and here's what he wrote on fox news' website this week. as a strictly military matter if the war in iraq had ended whe

of the time frame as well as defenses, intelligence, military cooperation so that the iranians understand there is a common belief between the united states and israel in terms of preventing, not containing, preventing iran from becoming a nuclear weapon. what president obama was hoping to receive from prime minister netanyahu, in fact he got it was endorsement of the american plan to prevent iran from having a nuclear weapon. >> do you see it the same way? >> i think what obama did was bought himself some time. remember, there's a lot of opposition inside the israel establishment anyway. a test will really come if the u.s. gets close to a diplomatic deal with iran, would this israeli government support any diplomatic deal the united states could get with iran. >> why does it matter if we get a deal not to go nuclear with weapons, why does it matter if israel that? >> because a lot of republicans would be opposed to it. >> how would that hurt our government. >> if there is a deal, we have to give on something, not a complete capitulation from iran, some gestures towards lifting sanctions
